The Sioux Empire Baseball Association has announced that Joel Sage has stepped down as head coach of Sioux Falls Post 15 West.

Sage has been a long-time coach for Post 15 dating back to 2005. He has been the head coach of both Post 15 East and Post 15 West during his tenure in the programs.

He took over Post 15 West in 2011 and took them to seven straight playoff appearances, and placed third in 2013 and 2015.

The announcement says that he will continue to be the head coach of the Roosevelt Rough Riders high school baseball team. This past season the Riders went undefeated and won the state championship under Sage.
